Hey there!

How’s that holiday season coming along?

While I’ve been tempted to stay trapped in sugar addiction la la land, I’ve been giving it my best effort to continue eating mindfully during the holidays.

Don’t worry, I’ve had my fair share of indulgences (I ate roughly 56% of my Healthy Sweet Potato Casserole on Thanksgiving, put quite the dent in my Paleo Vegan Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars,  barely had enough self-control to share my Paleo Gingerbread Pancakes with my partner, and there’s been Christmas cookie after Christmas cookie being pumped out in the background over here). 

So yeah, things have been pretty sweet 😉

But giving it my best is giving it my best, and that’s all we can really do, right?

So to keep life somewhat on track during the otherwise hectic (and tempting) holiday season, we have for you another meal plan!

We’re going to Flavortown with this one! With some rich and comforting main dishes as well as some lighter fare, we have quite the variety for you.

If you’re looking for sides to any of the mains, I always suggest my Easy Sautéed Vegetables or my Garlic Herb Roasted Vegetables.

Oh and be sure to check out my Paleo Sweet Potato Pie if you haven’t already! It is sinfully delicious and surprisingly healthful!

Let’s jump into this week’s menu! Feel free to reach out with any questions!

PALEO WEEKLY MEAL PLAN:

SUNDAY:

Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad with Roasted Butternut Squash – A fresh shaved Brussels sprout salad with roasted butternut squash, pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds, chopped apple, and feta cheese – all tied together with a citrusy maple cinnamon dressing. Incredibly flavorful and filling!

Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad with Roasted Butternut Squash, Pomegranate Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Feta, and Citrusy Maple Cinnamon Dressing | TheRoastedRoot.net #healthy #salad #vegetarian #gltuenfree #sidedish #thanksgiving

Special Diet: Recipe can be made strictly paleo by omitting the feta cheese. If making Whole30, omit the feta and pure maple syrup. Salad is fairly low-carb.
Prep Ahead: No advance prep is needed, but you can roast the butternut squash up to 4 days ahead of time if desired. The dressing can also be made 1 week in advance.
Substitutions/Notes: Use your favorite salad dressing and/or add animal protein (rotisserie chicken works great!) to make this a balanced meal.

MONDAY:

Thai Peanut Curry with Chicken Meatballs – This fun Thai Peanut curry has a rich, peanutty sauce, lots of vegetables, and tender ginger chicken meatballs! Have a takeout quality meal on the table in under an hour.

Thai Peanut Turkey Meatball Curry

Special Diet Notes: Recipe paleo — use almond butter if you like.
Prep Ahead: The chicken meatball mixture can be made 1-2 days in advance.
Substitutions/Notes: Serve with cauliflower rice to make it grain-free, and use any nut butter you like. Peanut butter has the strongest flavor, though. You may even omit it if you’re avoiding nuts — it’s still great without it.

TUESDAY:

Instant Pot Creamy Tuscan Chicken (with Slow Cooker Option) – Instant Pot Creamy Tuscan Chicken with dairy-free sun-dried tomato sauce and spinach is a rustic, enticing main dish! Serve it up with rice, noodles, or your favorite side dishes for a complete meal. If you don’t own an Instant Pot, no sweat! I have included a slow cooker option as well.
